    Well, Rob Kardashian probably won't do worse than Kim.

    I wish they'd replace Brooke Burke with Tanith Belbin.

    Snooki's the worst! Stick her with Mark Ballas and not Max (are they both doing the show this season?)

    Here Here! (for Tanith)

    Rob K.: What a waste of a selection. I won't be watching.

    As much as adore Agassi and would love to see that, it would really surprise me if he ever did it...he's been pretty low profile (except for his book) since retiring from competitive tennis and he had horrendous back issues at the end of his career; I'm sure he wouldn't want to take a chance with that.

    :lol: I read a headline earlier this week that DWTS was seeking to "up" its image and only cast A-Listers/relevant sports stars/past "legends".

    The next headline is this -- confirmation that this guy was casted. A guy whose only claim to "fame" is being the 7th or 8th banana in a bad reality show that exists only due to his sister having sex on tape. Way to get those A-Listers!

    I've never heard of this guy until clicking that link ... would he be an F-Lister? Just below Bobby Trendy?

    Rob Kardashian, what a waste of a choice.

    I love when they have the athletes on, even if they're not in sports i follow. They mostly seem to have good personalities and they're naturally competitive attitudes tend to come out.

    Maybe he is.

    Maks said he wasn't coming back. I hope he changes his mind.

    When/where did he confirm he's not coming back? He always hints at not coming back, but then he always does. He's the Brett Favre of DWTS!

    He said at the end of last season. I couldn't blame him if he did not, but I'm sure it will depend on whether he has other ventures at the time. Even though he hasn't won, he usually goes far into the season and makes a good bit of money. He's my reason to watch also. And Dmitry. I think Derek is supposed to be back since his movie is over. I didn't miss him last season, although Mark is less obnoxious when Derek is around. I guess he has to fill that niche.

    Can they give Snooki to Derek and hopefully they'll both be off my TV faster that way? :p

    I had heard the story about them only wanting to cast A-Listers too so they could avoid the "who?" factor when the names come out. Too bad that wasn't true, cause as I read the article, the only thing my brain kept saying was .... wwwhhhoooo????? :lol:

    I admit I wasn't saying who. I was asking why when I read some of the names being thrown around.

    Isn't Snooki very short? Unfortunately, short usually goes to Louis Van Amstel.

    I had read that Louis was 5'5" but online it says 5'7". Mark Ballas is 5'6" so with any luck he'd get the 4'9" Snooki if she is on. Derek is 5'8"

    *snort* 5'7" in Cuban heels, maybe. (In fairness that's how tall he'd be dancing--men's Latin shoes have a 1 1/2"-2" heel on them.)

    How about that little blond guy they had on before? He was even shorter.
    Just made for Snooki.

    Damian? (I have yet to met anyone named Damian who's unattractive.)

    I don't mind if Snookie's on the show. It'll be fun. She might surprises people with her dancing ability.

    No wonder the producers have problems attracting stars.
    Once you go the reality tv and d-list stars route there's only one way to go. The celebrities might be afraid what the association will do to their profile.

    Oh, god. I hope he'll pass and try to hold on the the half-shred of dignity he has left.

    Regarding Snooki, it seems that Mark often gets the really short ladies. Shawn J. and Kristi Y. come to mind, so there's hope.

    Especially not a politician with an unfortunate last name who had to resign over a scandal involving Twitpics of an unfortunately-nicknamed body part. That's asking for trouble in SO many ways.

    But, ABC figures it will be ratings gold.

    Weiner won't be on this season. He still has to finish his "rehab" :shuffle:
